The office is nice and friendly. However, I am very dissatisfied with my rhinoplasty results. It's been 2 years after the surgery and my nose looks exactly the same as before if not worse. Looking for another plastic surgeon to do it right.

I would highly recommend Dr. Samuel Shatkin Jr. for any plastic reconstruction surgery you are considering. I was extremely pleased with the outcome of my "tummy tuck". His professionalism, knowledge, trustworthiness and kindness are above and beyond, bar none. We are so fortunate to have him in the area to address our medical needs regarding plastic surgery.

I recently visited Dr. Shatkin for a face, neck and eyelid lift consultation. I was completely satisfied as he took the time to address and evaluate my individual goals, made recommendations I hadn't thought of, showed me photographs of his work, and fully answered all of my questions and concerns. What more could anyone ask? I would highly recommend him and look forward to a continuing relationship under his care.
